Resume thread? Post, critique, r8.

>>1056233

Just another example of a college education going to waste.
>>
Why do you put your high school diploma on your resume if you have a college degree? There's a lot of wasted space, include stuff like honors and awards.
>>
>>1056233
>No honors, awards, or GPA
>No experience (paid or otherwise) relating directly to your degree
I look at this and think, "This is a very boring person with no desire to move up in the world" which is the opposite of what I should be thinking
>>
>>1056233
Just list the name of the highschool and graduation date. Also dont waste so much space, you've managed spread 1 paragraph of info over an entire page

I take it you speak Japanese?

The education section being the only section centralized looks weird.

These are just suggestions, take them as you will: eliminate first section, add a Skills section where you mention the technologies and Japanese fluency. Change Work Experience to Experience and add the Forex there. Organize the Education section with the space left over so you don't have to fit it all into one line. Add GPA if above 3.0

Good luck

Have a summary of qualifications section and list only areas of strengths directly related to the job at hand. Pro Tip: look at the job description to guide you through this section.

Write each resume based on the job you are applying for. If they want bar tending skills, only put things that are related to bar tending. Also read the job description and put shit into the resume that sort of matches it, but in your own words.

Prepare a cover letter as well. Tailor it to each job. The muse has a good one.

Question /biz/

Should I add courses and workshops and academic degrees related to the job in a second sheet? Or just mention some academic/postgraduate degrees in the main sheet?

They are like 20+ workshops and stuff but only about 5 academic and postgraduate courses.
>>
>>1059241
You should keep it to one page. Add courses if you are applying to an internship. Add workshops if you are becoming an apprentice. Add work history if you are applying for a job.

Good tip, thanks. I'll move that to the end.
>>
>>1059294
The first impression that I got was 'is this guy a translator or what?'.

If you don't want to move it to the end you could also put the education section over the skills one.
So, people would read about your specialization and then know you are proficient in japanese.
>>
>>1059313
>The first impression that I got was 'is this guy a translator or what?'

That makes perfect sense. Thinking back, I arranged the skills on how proud of I was on them, not on how useful they'll be in application or how impressive they are. Foreign language is a supplementary skill unless you're translating or teaching. Very useful point.
>>
>>1059269
What strikes me is that the skills section is unnecessarily verbose. Just bullet out your actual skills. You can elaborate on them once you get to the interview stage. Also, your business software and econometric knowledge are the most marketable skills unless you are shooting for a job as an Attache to the Japanese Ambassador, so put that first. Also don't say 'basic Matlab, Python and C++' if you get asked you can provide your level of knowledge.

>3.2 GPA
might not put this down. It's solid but not terribly impressive.

I'd also put the experience into a more easily digestible format. Right now it's kind of wall-of-text.
>>
>>1059330
>don't say 'basic Matlab, Python and C++' if you get asked you can provide your level of knowledge.

Thanks for the tips, I've rearranged the skills and changed that sentence to: "Experience with MATLAB, Python, and C++."

Also, I removed my GPA not just because that 3.2 isn't very impressive, but because I still have 30 units of classes that will massively affect my GPA before I graduate.

I'll look into ways to reword my experience and skills sections to make them more concise.
>>
>>1056284
who the fuck puts GPA and school honors on a resume unless you're fresh out of school and have no prior work experience?
>>
>all these lengthy, convoluted resumes

you realize recruiters only look at these things for like 30 seconds, max, right?

also all your pretty formatting is going to go away when they copy/paste a chunk of it into an email to send to some internal mailing list

name, contact info, work experience, tertiary education, specialized skills/knowledge - all in that order

keep sentences short with very basic language and grammar. each sentence should express a single thought. only mention duties that they specifically bring up in the job ad. otherwise, mention one or two notable achievements in previous positions.

i have a degree and five years of work history and my resume is half a page (not going to post it as i can't be bothered anonymizing it). i always get interviews, though, so i'm not talking out my ass.

OP's is the closest to being good, but there's a lot of BS on there. dumb language (don't use words like "alleviated" if you don't know what they mean), mentioning high school from five years ago, excessive formatting, etc.

what a clusterfuck

why would you mention kitchen work when applying for a technical position? you think if you don't get the job they might let you wash dishes in the cafeteria?

completely generic drivel at the start and you have various spelling errors and inconsistent formatting (which, again, will get fucked up if they ever try to copy/paste any of it)

your work list is great (except for the kitchen job)

the only three things that hiring managers (and, by extension, recruiters) are looking for in candidates:

#1: is this person capable of delivering work of acceptable quality on time and in budget?

#2: does this person have relevant skills and knowledge that will minimize the training required?

#3: will this person rock the boat or otherwise cause issues in our organization?

address #1 by providing a list of times you did good work on time and under budget

address #2 by providing a list of relevant skills and knowledge you already possess

address #1 and #2 by having a degree - in most industries a person who has a degree is more likely to meet the #1 and #2 criteria

address #3 by providing them with a list of people who will tell them you're not a psycho

give them a way to contact you

anything else is fluff that will be ignored
>>
>>1059378
Your summary is shit. No employer will know what the fuck you mean. Use the paragraph under experience for this.

Put that shit which is under skills, under experience.

Forex trader --> Forex Trading

Ops Core... something something... make this a position or some sort of experience.

Education should have the institution on the left and the year of finalization on the right. They need to be separate. Bold what is on the right. Keep the place and don't write out Bachelors degree. Write B.S. or B.A.

All the stuff that is underlined under the skills section should be bullet pointed and put together in a neat column to save space.

Make the descriptions of your experience have more power words. Get rid of "my responsibilities" and just write changed and managed inventories, automated customer service tasks, etc. Write something for each of these that shows a tangible contribution to the business such as "improved sales flow"

Umi sushi should be "assisted a diverse customer base".

Japanese fluency.

Get rid of "please inquire for blah blah blah" and just provide a list of references. Putting that on the back would be nice as well.

Get rid of flexible, dependable etc...

I'm not going to post my resume, but I have a resume question.

I'm a software engineer. One of my most recent personalish projects is a website dedicated to a specific reoccurring thread on 4chan. Employers LOVE to see personal projects, but the problem is that since a lot of the content on the website is user submitted, it has a lot of less-than-appropriate content on it. The usual barrage of racism, sexism, and other offensive material. Even the name of the site could be considered slightly offensive.

My question is, should I put it on my resume? Or is it risky to put something like that up?

By the way, would you recommend posting a resume on dice when you're just trying to evaluate your own position?

What's the site?

That sounds like problem. A company probably wouldn't want it public that one of their employees is associated with any hate material. Although, on the inside, they'd like it, it's a serious issue for the company.

You could make a duplicate site with sfw threads perhaps without even registering a domain.
>>

stick the code for the website on github, link the code
>>
>>1059694
>>1059713
Well since it's database oriented I guess I could just post the code somewhere or I guess a duplicate is out of hand.

I guess the unfortunate part is that it would make my site look less used. I'd assume a company would love to see that I personally developed a well used application, but I suppose there has to be a trade off. Thanks guys.

Guys, I was recently promoted from junior analyst to senior analyst. I did this in 4 years compared to my employer's policy that such a promotion requires 7 years of service.

Should I explicitly state this on my resume? I plan to look for jobs now just to see what's out there and I'm just afraid if I have an interview they'll ask me how long I've been a senior analyst and don't want to say I was promoted a month or so ago and am looking to bail out.

>None of the shit on the first page is needed except for summary and education. Get rid of accolades. Employers don't care.

Re write the summary to tailor to the business. This changes.

You could keep relevant course work.

Core competencies - get rid of the word skills.

Get rid of leadership activities and interest - put something in there about volunteer experience.

For all professional experience, shorten all the bullet points. You're not writing a novel. Just talk about a few of the things you did that benefitted the company and some of the skills that you learned "cashiering" for ex.

Two pages is fucking long. There is way too much. You come off as a try-hard.

>>1062977
Get rid of it unless you can talk about the volunteer activities you did as an eagle scout. Do you really want to be put on the spot trying to explain that? No one cares that you WERE an eagle scout. They care what you did as one and what experience it is bringing their business.

Stop thinking of a resume as something that shows you off. It is not showing you off, it is showing the company how you benefit them. Change your perspective.

Change the engineering intern duties and use more words that show off your skills.
>>

From one veteran to another, let me teach you a lesson about resumes that I learned the hard way.

It's difficult to understand, but hiring managers don't give a rat's ass about your military service.

To them, "military veteran" is code for "degenerate lunatic," and "national guard" is code for "peacetime temporary employee."

Swallowing this pill isn't easy because we obviously take pride in the incredible things we accomplished, but anyone who isn't a veteran just doesn't understand, and they have no desire to do so.

The only way to get around this type of prejudice is to sterilize your resume and rephrase your military accomplishments and titles to appear as generic as possible.

So, you're an E-4 with an 11-series MOS, or an "infantryman corporal."

Run that through the civilian translator, and you're now a "operations team leader."

I know it hurts to put that down in lieu of your rooty-tooty-point-and-shooty title, but believe me when I tell you that putting down "infantryman corporal" makes these people think that you're a knuckle-dragging trigger puller.

Get rid of the terms "enlisted, NCO, command," and weapons" and replace them 1) with the dollar value of your equipment and 2) the number of people, or "direct reports," that you led.

Here are some examples.

>Managed 3 direct reports and equipment worth over $100,000.
>Directed technical training programs for high-performance teams.
>Coordinated the logistics of thousand-dollar exercises within a three-tier organizational structure.

You also need to change "National Guard" to "US Army" and pray that they don't ask about your component.

If they do, tell them that you're "close to fulfilling your obligation in the Reserve" and that you "cannot deploy."

Good luck -- it sucks out there.

You're welcome, brother.

The TAP program is supposed to teach you exactly what I just posted, but it doesn't, which is why so many veterans are set up for failure.

Instead of telling veterans the truth about hiring managers and their disdain for our kind, the TAP administrators tell us that everyone loves and respects us.

It's a load of rubbish because even the veteran-friendly companies only give jobs to veterans under explicit conditions that often discount our military service.

It was very late in the game before I figured out that anything even remotely combat-related on your resume must be rephrased or expunged in order to put you on the same playing field as civilians.

You have to coat every single bit of your military experience in a thick layer of corporate bullshit to keep the drones in the human resources department from associating you with Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket.

We should have figured out from the Vietnam veterans that what we did on the inside won't get us anything on the outside, but it's easy to forget that fact when so many civilians use the "thanks for your service" catchphrase.

I honestly think everyone exaggerates like crazy on their resume. I recommend putting a photo of yourself on your resume and describing your interests/hobbies.

I personally hire solely based on looks, intensity of eyes, tone of voice, and mannerisms. Everything else doesn't matter to me.

Seriously though...everyones resume is so god damn boring.

Most resumes just indicate how people have no life, it's sad. You've done this and that in the hopes of making a good income, but how have you LIVED?

If I was a person hiring I'd hope someone's resume would be more creative and show that they have a personality of some kind. That they have a life outside of work.

It's the internet age. All resumes should be in video form with you in it, talking about your experienc eand life, and posted on youtube.

I disagree... some places that you apply for need a document that is attached. What are you going to do? Write down a youtube link? I guess it would be okay to include this on your resume, or add your resume hyperlink from linked in, but otherwise no one is going to want to watch a cringey video unless you are applying to google or a new, up and coming, tech company.
>>
>>1065943

For the IT crowd & digital nomads, video resumes are perfect. You can also include a regular resume as well if you'd like but trust me a video resume which isn't the norm today will make the most impact out of anyone that applies.

Most resumes get discarded. A video resume posted on youtube will get the most interest. How can you deny that fact? You will stand out beyond everyone else that applies even if you don't have as much experience as they do.

I've never read a second page of a resume that's landed in my inbox. Ever.

Regarding the livejournal/blogger stuff, vagueness if your friend. Reword along these lines:

Developed design templates for mainstream blogging platforms, which were downloaded by thousands of users.

Designed e-commerce solutions for independent bloggers.

Leave the details for the interview, where they're more concerned with your soft skills anyway.

Vagueness is your friend on a resume, except when you have successful numbers to report (as you do on page 1). except:
>Offered option of full-time job after graduation from university.

No one reading your resume gives a fuck about this. let it come up in the interview.

Take a look, chums. It looks like I'm a bit further along in my career than most of the people who posted in here, but feedback is always helpful.

>Reduced payroll and financial statement processing time by more than 75 percent while significantly reducing errors

Lead with this shit in those respective sections. A senior director or VP will get a hardon when they see that you understand what they expect of you at your management level.

Be prepared in the interview to talk about your eclectic work history in a way that makes sense to someone who doesn't know you.

this looks a lot better, anon. in the duties and work descriptions sections, get rid of the section header ("duties and work descriptions") and turn the paragraphs into single sentence dot points. this will make your resume a lot easier to scan and will cause things like "achieved a 25 percent return over a nine month period" to really stand out

>Also, is it really ok to have this much blank space on my resume?
absolutely

>I don't want to waste their time but this is all that I think is actually relevant.
if you only have half a page of content, you're wasting their time by trying to stretch it out to a full page. at best they'll see through your attempt to seem more qualified and ignore it. at worst they'll just chuck your resume out when they're halfway through and get bored.

schools and universities cultivate this mindset that you need to do tons of stuff and then record everything you've ever done because that's how it works in education/research for some reason.

in reality, your resume should be like a highlight reel. they're only going to look at it for 30 seconds, so give them 30 seconds of the best stuff you've ever done. get straight to your point, make the point, and move on.
>>
>>1066999
much much better, nice dubs and trips

Forex Trading --> Forex Trader
Ops Core through Boston Contemporaries --> What was the actual name of this position? The title of the position is confusing.

Should read a lot faster. Should not have complete sentences. For example: Managed Military startup company in ballistic helmets manufacturing. Managed Inventories. Ran online payment system. automated customer service tasks. Regulated international shipments to adhere to customs regulations. You don't need the last sentence, unless you can say how you tangibly improved the company like "improved sales flow 35%".

Duties and work description --> Duties (it's too long). Try to save space.

Education --> get rid of ocused on Econometrics. Just list one or two relevant courses.

You lack a general summary of who you are and what you are applying for. Tailor that to each company and add at top after the name and contact section.

Use numbers instead of naming the months.

Maybe add a skills section that says how you are fluid in Japanese.

Put your education on the top and experience after it. Switch those sections around because of alphabetizing ed before ex.

Use bullet points under the experience sections to break apart the long descriptions. Employer should be able to read that really quickly. You too, when it comes time for the interview. You will need a copy to look over as well. It just helps.

Also put the dates for education on the right hand side and bold them to match the education bolded stuff on right for symmetry.

Lastly, choose a different font, similar to what you have, but one that looks better.

>Lastly, choose a different font, similar to what you have, but one that looks better.
not really important. better to choose a font that is universally inoffensive rather than choose one that appeals to you but potentially won't appeal to a recruiter.

POO in the LOO Pajeet

God this shit is cringey as fuck. I would laugh at your shit. I guess if you REALLY REALLY want a cringey as fuck video, then put a link on the FUCKING resume.

Also the "Submit" button that you have, which so many companies have on their websites will not take a video, but it will take docx and pdf. So what are you going to do? Put in a pdf that just says go to this link? Here's a better idea than a shitty ass resume. How about a modular .pdf? Make a pdf that has a video link in it? And there you go.
>>
>>1067529
We disagree on the summary thing, but the main idea is to have something that the employer can re-look at and then decide without having to read a giant thing over and over again. I personally like them. If written well, they can be really effective. It just depends on how it is being used.

"Summary statements are usually best for more experienced professionals with years of experiences to tie together with a common theme (read: brand). Or, alternatively, they can be used to tie together disparate experiences with a set of key transferable skills. On the other hand, if you have a pretty linear or straightforward career path, the space is probably better used for additional bullet points in each role."
https://www.themuse.com/advice/the-resume-summary-statement-when-you-need-one-and-how-to-do-it

In my opinion, he is tying a lot of different positions and experiences together, so to sum them toggether would be a good idea. It really is up to OP though.

The reason I say to change the font is because Times New Roman is probably the most commonly chosen fonts for resumes — the very reason you should avoid it

>https://www.themuse.com/advice/the-resume-summary-statement-when-you-need-one-and-how-to-do-it
the author of that article is a "career development specialist" at MIT. i don't trust resume advice from people who are not recruiters or hiring managers, or are not simply reiterating advice they got from recruiters or hiring managers.

the advice i've been giving in this thread is essentially what i was told by a recruiter while i was traveling with her trying to find new hires for our company. i watched her turn a stack of over 100 resumes into a stack of 30 in an hour. i've also had a great deal of personal success putting her advice into practice - in the past five years i've been interviewed for every position i applied for.

now things are different from industry to industry, and they're also different for people with more work experience, but by and large for entry-level positions anything that takes longer than 30 seconds to get its point across will end up in the trash.

that's why i don't like summary statements or objectives or any of that crap. they'll either be ignored or chew up valuable time that the recruiter could've spent looking at a better part of the resume.

>Times New Roman is probably the most commonly chosen fonts for resumes
for good reason

if you choose a font that the recruiter or hiring manager subconsciously doesn't like you've shot yourself in the foot for no reason whatsoever.

Fantastic advice, /biz/ delivers.

I couldn't pick just two education points so I put "Topics studied" and listed my academic focuses in bullet points. How does it look now?

Also, I said earlier in this thread that this is my nepotism resume that I'm giving to a business partner of my dad who will be passing it on to whoever is interested so I'm trying to be very broad with it.

How does it look now?
